Local Matters is excited to join our neighbors and volunteers for a Parsons Avenue clean-up in celebration of Earth Day! You can participate in the clean-up and swing by Local Matters to meet our cooking and nutrition instructors, taste delicious samples, and sign up for classes that we are hosting in our new kitchen.
Local Matters hosts a variety of “pay what you can" public cooking and gardening classes in the CareSource Community Kitchen. Class topics and descriptions are found on the calendar below, in addition to other public events and programming. "Let's Get Growing" classes offer topics around gardening; "Let's Get Cooking" creates a foundation for cooking by learning the fundamentals; "Let's Have Fun in the Kitchen" gets the whole family cooking together (bring your kids to class!); "Let's Get Talking" provides a variety of film screenings and conversation around food and culture. It is our hope to bring everyone together in the kitchen to learn about healthful food in a variety of fun and interactive ways.
